Obstetric Anesthesiologist

The Dalhousie Department of Anesthesia, Pain Management and Perioperative Medicine, located in Nova Scotia, Canada, is seeking an academic Obstetric Anesthesiologist to join its dynamic and growing team.

We care for patients of the IWK Health Centre, Maritime Canada’s tertiary referral hospital for women’s and obstetrics care. The Women’s and Obstetric Anesthesia department consists of a team of 10 Obstetric Fellowship-trained anesthesiologists (plus five anesthesia assistants, one anesthesia technician and two research staff) who provide a full range of labour analgesia and obstetric anesthesia services with 5,000 deliveries each year. In addition, the team serves gynecology and breast health anesthetic needs (2000 surgeries annually).

We are also affiliated with Nova Scotia Health Authority’s Central Zone and the QEII Health Science Centre, Atlantic Canada’s largest tertiary/quaternary care facility with 70,000 procedures completed annually. At the QEII, anesthesiologists deliver the full spectrum of general and specialty anesthesia services, perioperative and critical care medicine, and acute and chronic pain management.

As part of our team, you will enjoy a challenging and rewarding career with outstanding clinical and academic opportunities. Plus, you’ll be doing so in the vibrant provincial capital of Halifax, where big-city convenience meets small-town charm.
